's peter alexander joins us from london. peter, first to you. clearly they're trying to get past this and what could be a minor goof in any other context really, really did not rub the right way with the brits. >> i think you're exactly right. as the campaign advisors said to us in advance of this trip, this was an effort for romney to listen and learn and today, again, he's getting an earful from the british press and from officials in this country. another headline remarkably read today mitt, the twit. notices athose are not the headlines the camp was looking for when they arrived in london. romney hopes as he heads to israel tomorrow morning, and we will be on that flight, that that trip as well as tonight's opening ceremony, the festivities here, will really wash away any hard feelings that may exist. to be fair, it does demonstrate how just a small gaffe overseas can really be magnified. when we speak to people, when you hear from boris johnson or david cameron, it looks like a huge thing that's exploded but as you talk to some people on the streets, a lot of them are still

contests, they want to be able to use this to hammer democrats who supported the law, supporting a tax. but the romney campaign doesn't want to touch this at all. they want to move on to other things. >> chris christie was asked about this on cnbc this morning, asked about eric fernstrom's comments to chuck todd yesterday. >> listen, let's not focus on what spokespeople are saying, okay? spokespeople get in and fill in space on the cable stations, no offense. i care about what the candidate says and governor romney has been very clear about what this election should be about. it's about reinvigorating our economy, it's about releasing entrepreneurial spirit. those are the things this election's going to be decided on, not what a spokesperson says on a cable news station in july. >> also, the romney campaign put out this statement from the governor. the supreme court left president obama with two choices, the federal individual mandate and obamacare is either a constitutional tax or an unconstitutional penalty. governor romney thinks it is an unconstitutional penalty. what is president

that chris christie will not be the running mate? >> the first thing it tells us is that chris christie isn't going to be the running mate. look, i think what it tells us is they understand that chris christie is a powerful force within this party. he is someone who kind of has the charisma, the zeal that mitt romney to be frank lacks. i think they want to elevate chris christie. one other thing about chris christie i think gets lost in this, he is the speak truth to power guy, the i'm going to tell it how it is. he is also a governor elected in 2009 in a blue state. let's not lose sight of that, either, the messaging it sends that republicans can and do win in states that tend to go to democrats on the presidential level. assuming that jamie's reporting is right, i have no reason to believe it isn't -- >> jamie's reporting is always dead on. take it from me. >> i believe that christie is an intriguing and probably a great pick. i think he's going to draw a huge amount of attention and he will use this, christie will use this i think to launch himself even higher in kind of the national str

and apparently, james holmes was outside near his car and was immediately arrested by the police. can you tell us a little bit more, the back story before they got to his apartment? >> reporter: from what we understand, i can only report what the neighbors had told me here because i did not deal with the police directly at the scene of the theater. when i got here to where the neighborhood was evacuated, people were just caught off guard. there were people in pajamas, there were people, one woman was halfway wet because she was in the shower and police were just banging on these poor folks' doors saying you got to get out, there's possibly explosives in an apartment here. so that's what i can report. these poor folks whose lives have been kind of shifted over are taking it all in stride because they understand what they are dealing with is in no way, doesn't compare, you know, to what the families are dealing with who are losing loved ones, unfortunately. but i can tell you what we reported is that the suspect in this case initially told police that he may have had explosives in his car but from

that caught the romney campaign by surprise it was not one of the likely scenarios that most of us had mapped out. i don't think it was one of the scenarios they had mapped out, and i think they're still trying to deal with that, playing little bit of defense and they made a pretty obvious mistake, eric to chuck earlier this week made a mistake that made things worse. >> chuck, what is your take now, a couple of days later? we see mitt romney still trying to explain it. this was mitt romney on cbs last night. >> i said that i agreed with the dissent, and the dissent made it very clear that they felt it was unconstitutional. but the dissent lost. it's in the minority. and so, now the supreme court has spoken. there is no way around that. you can try and say you wish they had decided it a different way, but they didn't. they concluded it was a tax. that's what it is. >> so, it's a tax. >> but he seemed to be, it's a concession. he was conceding it's a tax. he's not, it's not in the same vain and enthusiasm with the rest of the republican party is grasping on to this tax argument, and that is wh

, of course, for us. chris, first to you. let's talk about the new strategy coming from the obama camp from what we've heard today. >> well, i think what president obama continues to do and you played the clip on the front end, is we're not going to apologize. we're going to stay on this. they will continue to stay on it. want to know why? know what we're not talking about is the jobs report. we're not talking about the economy. we're talking about mitt romney, how transparent is he being, is he not being transparent enough, and we're talking broadly about the fact that this is someone who is of significant wealth. the whole tax issue plays in that. you are seeing the obama folks calling for mitt romney to release his tax returns, to explain more. i think this is just not a good story line, not a good narrative for mitt romney. it's not a zero sum game in politics but in campaigns it's close to it, so a bad story line for mitt romney tends to be a good story line for barack obama. if the obama folks will continue, he'll continue to push this for as long as they can get traction on it. >> of

us from capitol hill. congressman, thank you for being with us. let's talk about the leaks and your concerns. do we have any indications that they could have come directly from the white house and that they could have been blessed by the president? >> you see, andrea, it's a whole panoply of leaks. it rises to the concern where you have even democrats raising questions about the origins of these leaks, and so we know a couple of things. the most damaging -- and i would argue, andrea, these are some of the most damaging leaks to our national security probably in my lifetime. serious, serious consequences. in some of the leaks it showed it had to have a high level of clearance, covert access to the information and access to the situation room and as a former fbi investigator that narrows that pull pretty closely. as we would say, that's a clue about where you can start looking for where these leaks could have originated. i think that's why all of the speculation both on democrats and republicans, it may have come out of the white house. >> we're talking about the number of books inclu

it. but i think what it does is it takes away an obvious hit that mitt romney and his team could use on barack obama just basically labeling him a big tax and spend liberal, that he's passing his health care plan that sure, it's constitutional because they're taxing people. it's just harder to make that argument given his past in massachusetts. so it may either lessen that tack or take it off the table entirely. eric fernstrom this morning seemed to take it off the table entirely to chuck todd this morning. >> really interesting. that's why that interview was -- is getting so much play and was such a big signal of where they're heading next. chris cillizza, thanks so much. see you later towards the end of the show. >>> for more on just where the presidential campaign stands, as we kick off a very busy holiday week, i'm joined by the best of the best, e.j. deion, msnbc contributor and columnist for "washington post" and charlie cook, msnbc political analyst and editor of the cook political report. you both have been going around in aspen and talking to people all weekend about a lot o

there will be a compromise on taxes until after the election and it's possible, this is worrisome for all of us, it may not even be then. this idea the election will be a mandate, sure, barack obama will win or lose, but congress, the house, the senate, going to be closely divided. remember, nothing goes through without that congress. i think we just have to be careful about assuming everything on november 7th is going to be totally clear on the way forward. >> that's why we call it a fiscal cliff. one other point on money. june fund-raising, team romney, the victory fund, the rnc, raising $1.61 million -- $106 million. they have a lot of cash on hand. the obama campaign did better than last month, the month before, $71 million combined. you can see the disparity there. >> one thing i will say, i think we have to put this in context. barack obama is the single greatest fund-raiser in the history of presidential politics. i say that because this is someone who raised $750 million in 2008. the idea he is being outdistanced even though the obama folks have been prepping that, saying we are going to get ou
